finding bin laden. mccain spoke on cnn. >> first of all, the brutality depicted there is very disturbing. the moral of the story is that torture does not work. it is hateful, it is harmful, incredibly harmful to the united states of america. and to somehow make people believe that it was responsible for the elimination of osama bin laden is in my view unacceptable. >> reporter: mccain and democratic senator dianne feinstein, who heads the senate intelligence committee, sent two letters to the acting c.i.a. director, demanding to know what information the agency had provided the filmmakers. at a washington, d.c. screening tuesday night, protestors dressed as detainees outside the newseum showed their objections, while inside, the filmmakers, who have said they deplore torture, told the "newshour" the dramatized account was intended to highlight an extraordinary intelligence effort. >> everybody's entitled to their opinion and there's certainly a moral complexity to that ten- year hunt but what i'm most proud of is that the film sheds light on the professionals in the intelligen

of cnn's reliable sources. lauren, howy, welcome back this year. as technology has evolved employers are being forced to rewrite their social media rules. what is it that we're seeing? >> we're seeing a series of rulings from the national labor relations board. what we're finding is that workers are allowed to complain online, on facebook, if they want to improve wages and working conditions. otherwise, for get about it. >> you might think you'd get in trouble for dissing the boss in some of these cases. i guess there was one case where several case workers in buffalo got fired for complaining they were working too hard in their jobs. that was overturned by the labor board because it was considered protected speech. >> that's fascinating. does it matter if you're posting things saying you're bored at work or that you don't necessarily feel like you're getting all that much done in your work that day? >> well i think there are two things that you have to look at. if you are, when you are talking about work, doing something in a way that could get you more wages or in a way t

>> rose: welcome to the program. tonight, a conversation with piers morgan of cnn. >> honestly, piers, i think this is the wrong night to be doing this and i really wish you waited to have this segment until after the funerals. this is a time in colorado and nationally when it would have been better to have more of the se segments like you did before with the family and when people could be unified in helping the victims. >> let me challenge you on what you just said. a lot of people have said that today, a lot of people who don't want strengthening gun control have said, "this is not the day to debate it." i'll tell you the day to debate it would have been yesterday to prevent this from happening. i think all journalists at their best ride the crux, sp of acceptability. journalism is a rough business. to get to the truth what i lot of people in public bodies are lyingnd of you skating, sometimes journalists have to play dirty, too, and to pretend otherwise i think is ridiculous. the mirror in my time i believe operated legally but operated right on that line. we drove very, ve

in england, does that mean they were driven by english coverage. cnn started in atlanta, did they have a bias towards the south? no. that happens to be where we're headquartered. it happens to be where the impetus this for this came from. but this is a long time plan for global expansion. we have a balkans network, we have a swahili network, a turkish network. we have children's programming and sports. this is a keynd very much needed part for that expansion. >> but you're best known -- or co-best known, if that's a word, for the arabic language service and people who watch this very closely, who've made academic study of it say there are two kettles of fish, al jazeera in arabic and al jazeera in english. how are they different and how would you explain that to an american who has heard a lot of things that haven't been complementary about the arabic language service. >> the difference is who's your audience. to be honesit's targeted towards an audience and the coverage we rely on arabic for some material, too, they rely on us, we share some facilities. editorially we have differ

when cnn's candy crowley almost -- almost -- asked barack obama and mitt romney about global warming. >> climate change, i had that question, all you climate change people, we just, you know again, we knew the economy was still the main thing so you knew you kind of wanted to go with the economy. >> and so she veered away, avoiding the issue as if global warming is of concern only to a small clique of elites instead of every one of us. and so for the first time since 1984 there was no mention of climate change in any of the presidential debates. no mention as that clock ticks away and the warnings mount. why isn't this planetary emergency on every politician's mind? why are any of us still silent? those questions prompted me to ask anthony leiserowitz joi me at this table. he's director of the yale project on climate change communication and a research scientist at yale university's school of forestry and environmental studies. he's a geographer by training, with a specialty in human behavior, the psychology of risk perception and decision making -- an expert on the public's percepti
